Snohomish County Prosecutors’ again caught violating the Constitutional rights of the accused

In May 2017, George Hatt was convicted of first degree murder of Andrew Spencer.

Andrew Spencer had broken into George Hatt’s girlfriend’s home, punched Hatt, while armed, and George Hatt shot and killed Spencer.  After Andrew Spencer was killed, Hatt panicked and dismembered the body and buried  Spencer’s body in the yard.

The jury didn’t buy Hatt’s self-defense argument, but Judge George Appel stated for the record at his sentencing hearing, ” sure Andrew assaulted you, but he didn’t deserve to die”.

Judge Appel’s on the record statements alone call into to question whether or not George Hatt is guilty of First Degree murder.

 


First degree murder is defined by RCW as:

Murder in the first degree.

(1) A person is guilty of murder in the first degree when:

(a) With a premeditated intent to cause the death of another person, he or she causes the death of such person or of a third person; or

(b) Under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to human life, he or she engages in conduct which creates a grave risk of death to any person, and thereby causes the death of a person; or

(c) He or she commits or attempts to commit the crime of either (1) robbery in the first or second degree, (2) rape in the first or second degree, (3) burglary in the first degree, (4) arson in the first or second degree, or (5) kidnapping in the first or second degree, and in the course of or in furtherance of such crime or in immediate flight therefrom, he or she, or another participant, causes the death of a person other than one of the participants: Except that in any prosecution under this subdivision (1)(c) in which the defendant was not the only participant in the underlying crime, if established by the defendant by a preponderance of the evidence, it is a defense that the defendant:

(i) Did not commit the homicidal act or in any way solicit, request, command, importune, cause, or aid the commission thereof; and

(ii) Was not armed with a deadly weapon, or any instrument, article, or substance readily capable of causing death or serious physical injury; and

(iii) Had no reasonable grounds to believe that any other participant was armed with such a weapon, instrument, article, or substance; and

(iv) Had no reasonable grounds to believe that any other participant intended to engage in conduct likely to result in death or serious physical injury.

(2) Murder in the first degree is a class A felony.

 


 

Here’s a few more facts that might help our readers understand why George Hatt should not have been charged nor convicted of first degree murder.

First and foremost, when someone breaks into your house with or without a weapon, are you not entitled to defend yourself?

Secondly, Andrew Spencer and his mother Cindy Wilson have an extensive criminal history that calls into question why Andrew was on George Hatt’s property to begin with.

Next, Judge Appel’s on the record statements ” sure Andrew assaulted you but he didn’t deserve to die” call into question why the hell Snohomish County Prosecutor’s charged George Hatt with First Degree murder in the first place, because even Judge Appel believed that Andrew assaulted George Hatt, and the record is clear that Spencer was killed on property not owned by Andrew Spencer.

Finally, here’s another major issue that happened inside the George Hatt trial that should not be overlooked. Attorney Jason Schwarz, a public defender, was caught in the hallways talking to a known Brady Cop, David Fontenot, bragging about how after the George Hatt trial he plans on opening up a private criminal defense practice and promised by Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office that he would be awarded contracts. My readers should keep in mind that Snohomish County’s Brady Cop David Fontenot was the detective in George Hatt’s criminal trial.  So while Defense counsel Jason Schwarz was representing George Hatt in a murder case, attorney Jason Schwarz was talking to lead detective David Fontenot who a witness against his client George Hatt, making side deals for contracts with the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

 

In addition, to Defense counsel Jason Schwarz throwing his client under the bus in exchange for money contracts with Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, here’s one more fact, from George Hatt himself ( filed into his appeal) that might be helpful in understanding why George Hatt’s Constitutional rights might have been  violated by not only Snohomish County but also by Snohomish County Public Defender’s Association.

In addition, Andrew Spencer’s mother Cindy Wilson was arrested for Arson I after she admitted to Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office that she burnt down George Hatt’s girlfriend’s home in Granite Falls.

Ms. Wilson’s criminal conduct of burning down the home of a single mother who just happened to be affiliated with the man who caused the death of her son is nothing more than vindictive.

Two wrongs don’t make a right, and lets hope a jury convicts Ms. Wilson of Arson I, putting her where she belongs.

State v Cindy Wilson, Snohomish County Case No: 17-1-01407-31


 

Now, for those who feel George Hatt is guilty of murder, don’t send me your hateful emails because my interest in America’s so called criminal justice system isn’t whether Mr. Hatt’s is guilty or not, it’s whether he received a fair trial and effective assistance of counsel pursuant to US minimum standards under the United States Constitution.

If he did not, he deserves a new trial. Until Hatt receives a fair trial, there is no way of knowing whether or not he is guilty of First Degree murder or not.
